Tiny Cobweb Spider  (four photos)
Genus Theridion

Theridion Cobweb Spider with
        a mite
I didn't give this little Cobweb Spider much hope when
I saw the mite attached to it. The last spider I found with
a mite didn't make it.  Carol Davis 5-26-2020, Taylorsville, UT

My cameras refused to focus on this beautiful little Cobweb
 Spider at Brighton, Utah because of the shaded area
I was in for most of the photos. Carol Davis 7-5-2009

  While I was shooting, a little boy that came along and
 asked me what I was doing. He was frightened when I
showed him the spider but after I told him how great
spiders were he calmed down. His parents  were very
supportive of my views. Carol Davis 7-5-2009
I still hold to the idea that the cobweb spider family has some of
the most  energetic species around--alway
s on the move. 
There are over 230 species of cobweb spiders  in North
 America.   Carol Davis, 7-5-2009
